vill adjourn sine die on Saturday after
oon, or at farthest, in the early days of
ext week. Members generally are pack
ng their gripsacks to flee on Saturday, al
hough both Houses to-day extended the
ppropriations to cover August 10.
The Texans who refused to stay in the
ancus yesterday and gave notice that they
rould filibuster against the substitute Dur
urow bill, which provided for an ap
ropriation of ?5,000,000 for the Fair, made
distressing failure to-day. A march was
tolen upon them at the outset, and they
rere defeated in their plans before their
rits woke up.
A Surprise to the Filibustered.
Almost as soon as prayers were said Mr.
Patchings, who returned to the city last
ight, reported a rule from the Committee
n Rules, prescribing that it would be the
rder to-day to suspend the rules for the
asisage of bills, as on the first and third
Iqndays of each month, which are known
s j'suspension days." Here was the point
t uliicli filibustering should have begun,
nt ithe Texan objectors, Kilgore, Bailey
nd Anthony, were busy planning how
ley would obstruct the Durburow bill, and
ie : -nle was adopted without a dissenting
Tl is rule absolutely put it beyond the
owi r of any filibustering to make more
iour or five dilatory motions, as a bill
its passage under a suspension of the
is is not subject to obstruction as it
fild be if taken up in its regular order.
fVlien it dawned upon the Texans that
ljjy were beaten by the rule, Mr. Bailey
I uausted every possible obstructive
otion, but as a quorum voted every time,
id as only a ball-dozen, all Texans, voted
.h him, he could neither pass nor obstruct
motion, could neither get tellers, nor corn
el the calling of the yeas and nays, so that
e was soon at the end of his string, and the
esolntion to suspend the rules and consider
ne Durburow bill in committee of the
hole, a, vote to be taken at 1 o'clock to
lorrow, was'speedily adopted.
The Texas I'podlcy to tlio Front.
Mr. Bailey, the iniant prodigv(he is only
9 years only) from Texas, delivered him
elt of a very well-constructed and sensible
peech, however. He described to tboe
democrats who opposed the 5,000,000
'steal," Out who had agreed to a compro
lise upon 52,500,000, in good set terms the
illainous logic that could denounce the
5,000,000 as a "steal," a "raid on the
"reasury," and with apparently clear con
ciences agree to a "steal" of $2,500,000.
ie had little fault to find with the Demo
rats who had all along favored the appro
priation. He did not condemn the Repub
icaus, but he certainly made those Demo
rats look down their noses aud squirm in
heir chairs, who had talked so highly and
olily against a 55,000,000 steal and had con
ented so easily and grace! ullv to a 52,500,
These half dozen Texans, of whom Mr.
tilgoreand Mr. Bailey are the most con
picuous, assuredly had the logic of the
ituation with them, but they had not much
This tiresome and disgraceful episode of
he end of the first session of the Fifty-first
loncress will close to-morrow, in all prob
bility. The only chance for further pro
onging the matter will occur it the Dur
urow bill be defeated upon the direct vote
rhen it is reported to the whole House
rom the committee of the whole. It was
learly stated to-day that the caucus action
ound no one to vote for the bill.
Not Otip of tun Tioa That Ulnd.
Mmbers who accepted the compromise
ad agreed to let a vote be taken upon it
rithout obstruction may yet vote against
he bill, and it is possible that the vote mar
e very close. The probabilities are, how
ver, that its passage is insured, as any
ther result would simply lead the Senate
o insist on the retention ot the 55,000,000
jnendment in the sundry civil bill.
Thoueh this bill was sent back to a con
erence by the House, the Senate adjourned

appens, the remaining work ot the two

ItcporU From the Jajf Committer.
A committee which promises to have sev
eral reports is the Watson "Committee on.
fags," as it has been vulgarly named,
ferry Simpson has prepared a report which
irgues throughout that enough has been
iroved to justify even the sweeping lan
ruage used by Mr. Watson in his campaign
extbook. The Chairman of the committee
vill write a report for the majority, which
vill exonerate Judge Cobb, of Alabama,
rom the charge of drunkenness, and will
old that the evidence in no way supports
he charge of Mr. Watson, that members
rttempted to make speeches when they were
n a, state of maudlin drunkenness, and
lrunken members reeled about the aisles,
vir. Grout, of New Hampshire, the one Ke
ublican of the committee, will probably
iake a third report, showing that it had
een proven that members had been seen
a the floor who were under the influence of
iquor, but not in sufficient numbers or fre
quency to justify language which imputed
a somewhat general inebraition to the
Mr. Watson said this afternoon that he
had no information as to the time when the
reports would be presented to the House,
nor In regard to the character of his pun
ishment. The majority report will severely
censure the offender, and leave it to the
House to name the penalty. Possibly
there may be a scene if any attempt is made
to censure Watson, as the Republicans
may filibuster against any motion to that
efie'et. The Republicans have constantly
given aid and comfort to the Alliance peo
ple in the House, for the purpose of mak
ing more oflensive to them the really shabby
treatment they have had at the hands of
Watson rieased With Alabama.
Mr. Watson is greatly pleased by the re
sult of the Alabama election. He is con
vinced that Kolb, the Independent Demo
crat candidate, will be found to be fairly
elected Governor if the votes can be hon
estly counted. At least, the majority of
the 'straight-out candidate, instead of being
50,000, as was at first reported, will be re
duced to nothing. Mr. Watson is emphatic,
however, in announcing that Kolb was not
accepted by the Alliance as its candidate.
It is now the policy of the People's party
to formally support tio candidate who is not
an avowed member of the party.
Representative Watson speakei with en
thusiasm of the work that is being done for
pure democracy with a small d, by the
People's party, summing it all up in the
declaration that the result of the movement
will be that the solid South will be broken
up, that there will be no white man's or
black man's partv, that every citizen will
be able to exercise his Tight to suffrage
without hindrance or intimidation, and that
there will be a free ballot and an honest
count. One could forgive a few cranky
propositions in any party or movement
which would bring about such a blissful
condition of affairs in the South.
Political Effect of the FiUbnsterlnc.
That the effect of the Democratic filibus
tering against the World's Fair appropria
tion will be heard in the politics of Illinois
and the States immediately around it, is
claimed by all the Republicans and ad
mitted by many Democrats. A prominent
Democratic member of the House, not from
Illinois, told me to-day that his party might
as well give up all hope of carrying Iowa,
Michigan, and even Indiana, as these States
were almost equally with Illinois inter
ested in and enthusiastic for the success of
Fair. This member had lately been through
all of the States named, and he declared
that it seems to be the unanimous senti
ment of the people that the Democrats had
made such colossal fools of themselves in
this Fair matter that they ought to be
taught a severe salutary lesson.
Jerry Simpson, of Kansas, who is one of
the most practical, dispassionate and
philosophical of men, takes very easily the
tremendous effort which be asserts is being
made to defeat his re-election. He is in
formed that about 8,000 negroes have been
imported from Southern States into his dis
trict to work on a new railroad, and that an
attempt will be made to vote them against
him. Mr. Simpson says, however, that he
has about 10,000 certain majority and he
can stand a few thousand imported fraudu
lent votes, if those who try to vote them can.
Mr. Simpson is emphatic in giving bis assur
ance that the People's party will carry
Kansas, the State ticket and the Presi
dental electors, by a large majority.

at the age of 104 years.
The deceased was widely known through

William Reese was born in Wales, June
14, 1788, and came to America some 60
years ago. He was engaged in the iron
manufacturing business in Wales, and upon
his arrival in Pennsylvania began buildinz
iron and steel mills. During his business
career he erected some of the largest mills'
in Pennsylvania, and was the pioneer of
iron men in the Eastern part of the State.
During the last quarter of a century Mr.
Reese has not been engaged in business pur

Nebraska Republicans Blake No Nomina
tion Because the Llehtg Go Out.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 4 After the most
bitter struggle ever known in a Nebraska
Republican convention, the State conven
tion adjourned at 7 o'clock this evening,
without having made a nomination. The
delegates will reconvene at 9:30 to-morrow
morning, and the fight will be renewed.
The great contest came on at 3:30, when the
ballot for Governor began. The nominees
were: Lorenzo Crounze, Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury; ex-Congressman
Thomas Majors, Lawson Sheldon, A. E.
Caddy, Jack McCall and Judge Reese. The
first ballot resulted: Crounze, 376; Majors,
314; Sheldon, 42; Cody, 82; Beese. L
There was little change on the second bal
lot, but when the third ballot was ordered
the trouble began. Pandemonium reigned
for half an hour, but at 6:45 another ballot
was taken, which resulted: Crounze, 393;
Majors, 317; Sheldon, 33; Cady. 60; McCall,
40; Beese, 2. After the result had been
known, an effort was made to adjourn
but the motion was lost. There was con
siderable filibustering and in the middle of
it, the lights in the Opera House were
turned out, A theatrical troupe was booked
to play there to-night, and in order to
secure adjournment, the proprietor of the
theater took this means to bring tbe con
vention to time. The play proved suc
cessful, and the convention was forced to
adjonrn until morning.

Bar Habbok, Aug. 4. SpecidW Of
the talk of Mr. Blaine's taking the stump
comparatively little is heard here, for at
this season Bar Harbor deals but little in
politics. Mr. Blaiue is living in the ut
most seclusion at Stanwood, seeing few but
his most intimate friends. That his mind
is actively at work, however, is shown by
the fact that he is in conference with states
men and politicians. It is said that one of
the members of Mr. Harrison's Cabinet
called upon Mr. Blaine last week.
Mr. Blaine passed last Monday in Ells
worth, visiting Senator Hale, who is to take
the stump very soon. Joseph H. Manlev.
of Augusta, came up to Ellsworth Tuesday
night, which he spent at Senator Hale's,
and then came on to Bar Harbor and spent
an hour with Mr. Blaine. Both Mr. Blaine
and Mr. Manley decline to speak for publi
cation, at present at least. Mr. Manley,
who Ib to return here soon, will have some
thing to tell when the plans are perfected.
Mr. Blaine, it is positively asserted, will
take the stump during the" campaign, and
do all he can for the success of his.party.
It is also asserted that Vice President Mor
ton will take an active part in the cam

confirm the statement that there will be a

been a great day and night for the Kentucky
Democrats. The opening and dedication of
the new Watterson Clubhouse drew to
gether all the leaders of the party in the
State. The Governor and bis staff came
down from Frankfort The Legislature was
left without a quorum. But the chief
feature of the occasion was the pres

Democrat nominee for Vice President who
came at the invitation of the Watterson
Club, and spoke both to a great concourse
of people at Leiderkranz Hall and to a
smaller gathering at the Watterson Club
house, where he was given a reception, and
where Mr. Watterson, in spite of his-j-ecent
severe illness, of which he showed decided
traces, also spoke.
Hon. John Yonng Brown, Governor of
Kentucky, presided over the great mass
meeting, and introduced General Steven

greeted with tumultuous enthusiasm. His
speech was devoted to the great deeds of

punctuated with applause. Speeches were
also made by Hon. J. Proctor Knott, Hon.
James A. McKenzie, Hon. Boyd Win

SUCCESS AT ETNA.
Members of the Amalgamated Association
Do Not Like the Idea of Non-Cnlon
Men Being in the JU1U of Spang, Chal
ftnt Si Co.
Success marks the operation of the plate
department in the works of Spang, Chalfant
& Co. at Etna. All the furnaces are run
ning full blast and the requisite number of
heats are being made. The members of the
Amalgamated Association do not seem to
take kindly to the change in af
fairs. When they learned that
the plate department was being
operated successfully they immediately is
sued a call for a meeting. This call reads
as follows: "There will be a mass meeting
in Odd Fellows Hall on Thursday after
noon. All the iron and steel uorkers of
Etna are invited to attend. All working
men come. By order of the committee."
A representative of The Dispatch went
to Etna about 2 o'clock, the time set tor
the Catherine, and met several members of
the Amalgamated Association, who said
that the meeting was open to anyone, but
fore the meeting cemmenced several out
siders were told to retire by Thomas Byers,
one of the Mill Committee. A visit to tbe
office of Spang, Chalfant & Co. revealed that
the plate mill crew had just finished their
last heat. 'The iron turned out is as good as
that made before the shut down.
Manager Chalfant was"seen coming 'to
ward the mill, and when spoken to said:
You have been through the milk We. do
not keep anyone out who wishes to go iu.
The gates are open, and we have
had no trouble. The men are better
satisfied now than they were before,

strangers, asked for employment They
were informed that at present there was no
work for them." The entire puddling de

any time, though no attempt has been made
to put it in operation.
One of the Amalgamated men was seen
later in the evening. In speaking of the
afternoon meeting he said: "We had a good
meeting. President-elect Garland and
Vice President Sheehan, of the Amalga

made stirring addresses to the men, about
200 of whom were in the hall. They
cautioned the men to stand together and
said they would undoubtedly win. Secretary-elect

Recently a new rolling mill has been
added to the Krupp works in the Ohio Val

any in the world. It is for rolling armor
plates, and turns out the heaviest plates of
this description that cap possibly be re
quired; that is, those of about 28-inch thick

idea of the dimensions or this machine may
be obtained from the statement that each
pair of crucible rollers, when in the rough
state, weighed 100,000 pounds; and the en
tire rolling mill, with its reversing engine,
the large furnaces, the cranes that can move
300,000 pounds, its beuding presses, etc.,

shears cut through paper, and extremely
thin plates are also produced. Automatie
tables are employed tor raising and lower

vices for guiding them as they pass be

So automatic is this process that, without
the aid of tongs or levers, the glowing
blocks move back and forth between the

The Export Demand Bather Better Than
MnraiAPOLis, Aug. L The Xortfucettern
Hitter says: As a result of accidents, caus
ing two mills to stand idle the cloilnj half
of last week and others to lose more or less
time, the flour output fell short of what it
was expected to be. The week's production
was 192.610 barrels, averaging 32,102 barrels
daily, ngainst 193,070 barrels the previous
week, 171,400 for the corresponding time in
1891 and 196,470 barrels in 1890. For the same
reason that existed last week, tbe output
for this week will likely show a decrease.
Flonr continues in active demand, and, as
wheat is a trifle cheaper, prices are easier.
Foreigners appear to be mora tesponsive to
any strength shown in wheat than Ameri
cans are, and the export trade is, if any
thing, rather better than domestic. The
direct exports last week were 72 500 Darrels,
against 70,160 barrels the preceding week.

IMPROVEMENTS IN ALLEGHENY.
Streets Must Be Sewered Before They Will
lie Krpaved Mr. Henrlcks Presents a
Plan for the Issuance of 81,000,000
Worth of BondL
The Allegheny sub-committee on streets
and sewers had an interesting meeting last
evening. Tbe question of the relationship
of sewering to paving occupied considerable
attention, and the committee put itself on
record as being opposed to the paving or re
pavlng of any street until after it has been
sewered and the sewer completed for at least
There were brought up abont a dozen
ordinances for the repaying of minor streets
with vitrified brick, asphalt block or asphalt
sheet. The committee added in each case
the words "or other improved pavement,"
and recommended to the Committee on
Public Works such ordinances as referred
to streets already sewered. Chairman Faulin
said he thought tbe committee ought not to
recommend the paving of any street where
the property owners had not secured sewer
aze facilities. Mr. Henricks thought it
ought to be made clear to the people that
they must petition for sewers before asking
The committee affirmatively recommended
an ordinance providing that no street shall
be repaved with improved pavement nnless
already sewered or where the sewering can
be done In the rear alleys, and that no re
paving shall be done until at least six
months alter the sewering has been com
pleted. Henrlcks on G-nrra! Improvements.
In connection with the question of re
paving and sewering Mr. Henricks pre
sented the following statement to the com
mittee: The present discussion of the subject of
public improvements In Allegheny City is
one of great importance to the future wel
fare of the city, aud it should be the aim of
tbe committee to fully set forth the needs
of the entire city, not a portion or particular
section. We need better streets, better
sewerage,-new and wide avenues to the sub
urbs, more light, and last, but not least, we
will havo to provide & better source of
water supply before a great while. The
public should be thoroughly informed as to
the probable cost and manner of paying for
the same. For large expenditures of money
for permanent improvements tbe issue of
bonds is the proper method, as it removes
the burden and distributes it so that when
the time for payment comes, a larger popu
lation, a larger property valuation, and con
sequently larger tax receiptsand a sinking
fund, created by yearly amouts set aside,
are ready to meet the bonds.
In connection with this Question, I desire
to call attention to several facts. One mill
tax yearly will provide for an issue of $1,
000,000 bonds, at 4 per cent interest, payable
lnSOyoars. One and one-half mill tax will
provide for $1,500,000 bonds, payable in 80
years. The property valuation of Alleghenv
is about $70,000,000, and 1 mill raises $70,000
yearly; IU mill would raise $105 000. With
$1,000,000 bonds we could set $500 000 aside for
street improvements, allow $300,000 for the
Butchers' Run, Woods' Run and other needed
sewers, allow about $50,000 te pay for con
demning toll roads within the city limits,
set aside $50,0C0 for increased electric light,
and have $100 000 for general purposes, such
as assisting in paying damages for opening
or new and wide streets to develop the out
lying wards, etc.
Developing the Ontstde Districts.
The valuation of rural propertv is about
$25,000,000, out of a total of $70,000 COO. The
acreage of the rural wards is 3,200 out ot
4,720. By Judicious management and open
ing of Rood streets the valuation would be
so raised that in the course of a few years
the rural wards would pay most of the tax,
and longbeloie the bonds would be duo tbe
money expended on new avenues would be
returned many times over. As an illustra
tion. nrODertv where California avenne is
laid out could have been bought two rears
ago from $1,500 to $2,500. In other words, it
returns over Ave liii'es the taxes to the
city treasury since the avenue has been
ODened. The balance of the rural wards
will, if properly opened up, add their quota
of inci eased tax returns to the city. The
mechanic, merchant and wealthy clas3'can
all find homes at reasonable figures and the
exodus to the East End of Pltfburg bo
stopped. With a million and a hair bonds
the extra $500,000 conld De expended on tbe
water supply and a better supply secured. I
would suggest that meetings be held in eaoh
ward and the matter thoroughly discussed,
and citizens and Councilman have a full in
terchange of views, so that whatever be
done in November next be for the best in
terests of the entire city.
Chairman Faulin said he considered the
matter suggested by Mr. Henricks to be of
great importance, and thought the members
of the committee ought to have' time to con
sider it some length. At the request of Mr.
Henricks the communication was laid over,
so that members could study the questions
involved. He hoped the committee would
be able to formulate a general plan to be
submitted to the Finance Committee.
The committee opened bids for repaying
Cabinet street and lor the construction of a
jetty to carry the Butchers' Run sewer out
into the current in the Allegheny river.

Infants fed on lactated food suffer less and fewer

Mothers should thoroughly understand what this
lactated food Is, how pure and nourishing and how
succeasfullr It meets nature's requirements. It is
a food which contain all the nntrltlre properties
sufficient to develop the child's bone, muscle and
fat, and which Is digestible from the time of birth
and nourishes as long as it Is eaten.
No sugar Is used In it but tbe pure sugar of milk,

malt, tbe finest wheat gluten, and the nutritious
elements of the oat, and the mixture Is thoroughly
cooked by high steamfheat.
